Douchebag of the Day

Morgan Stanley Vice-Chairman Rob Kindler:

500x_2bg2failThe license plate is self-explanatory, but you should also know that the Porsche Cayenne Turbo is the near top-of-the-line version of an utterly wasteful and pointless SUV. It has a $100,000 base price, so this vehicle probably cost a bit north of $120k.

may I take this opportunity to rant about vanity plates.
I fucking hate them. hate them. they are big here because I think they are free. I sometimes think if I see one more stupid cutesy bullshit vanity plate poking along in front of me I will run them right the fuck over.
rant over.

somehow missed that yesterday was World Aids Day.
here is a rather sad gallery of famous faces lost.

TJ: what do they mean “99 bottles of beer ON THE WALL?” How can they be on the wall? Do they mean on a shelf? Shouldn’t they be in the fridge, or a cooler?

@Prommie:
I thought that meant they were barfed on the wall.

on another topic. opinions requested I am considering giving Netflix for Xmas.

good idea?

bad idea?

@Capt Howdy:

To me, that’s like giving someone a recurring monthly bill.

@Capt Howdy: My brother, bless his heart, has one with a German word he didn’t know how to pronounce until I told him.

@Tommmcatt is hunkered down in the trenches:
well not forever but I see your point that the card should include some disclaimer that I do not intend to pay for it forever put in somewhat more diplomatic terms.

@Prommie: I thought it meant on top of a wall/fence, like the Berlin Wall.

@Capt Howdy:

That might be pretty nice, if you paid for it for a longish period of time, I guess. Do they do gift cards?

@Capt Howdy: On the upside, they make much easier to remember the plate of the SUV that ran your Honda off the road. I think of vanity plates (name says it all) as labels for douchebags. You have fair warning from the moment they pull up in the car.
@Prommie: @Jamie Sommers: Princess that I am, I pictured something like a plate rail.

@Tommmcatt is hunkered down in the trenches:
they do
if you click on the link they make it very easy which is why I thought of it.
plus the only thing I hate more than vanity plates is shopping.
I think I have a deficient homo gene or something.

@Mistress Cynica:

labels for douchebags

they should call them that. then it would be ok.

on a side note that car site you linked to liked my new Ford Edge. more or less.
I like it too.
